Ep 14: Pacific Rim

pacificrim_poster_striker_vs_kaiju

A ten minute movie review of Guillermo del Toro‘s giant monsters versus giant robots action-fantasy mash-up.

When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes-a washed up former pilot and an untested trainee who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

PACIFIC RIM is on global release. It has a running time of 131 minutes and is rated PG-13 in the USA and 12A in the UK.

Ep 5: The World’s End

The team behind British comedy hits SHAUN OF THE DEAD and HOT FUZZ are back with a new buddy comedy slash sci-fi/horror spoof mash-up.  I loved the comedy swearing and slapstick humour but had less patience for director Edgar Wright’s fondness for SCOTT PILGRIM-y over-stylised, video-game violence.
